Self Improvement for Chronic Kidney Disease Patients: Showing Up in Our Lives and Bodies

2021-07-01

Episode 193: Self Improvement for Chronic Kidney Disease Patients: Showing Up in Our Lives and Bodies. Those coping with a chronic illness experience many feelings—shame, guilt, fear, grief, sadness, anger, confusion, and feeling like they are too much, yet not enough at the same time. Some even make statements like, “I’m taking up too much space” and “I feel so alone” and “I feel like a burden” and “I’m scared nobody will believe me or understand me” to name a few. Licensed Clinical Social Worker Lana Lipe discusses the research and origins behind our personal shame stories and offers tips to help chronic kidney disease patients recognize and manage them. By recognizing the signs, we can implement self-development skills that lead to self-improvement.
